* OutOfOrder: [[https://twitter.com/#!/benbocquelet/status/171333978371006464 Episodes often air out of production order]], which was stated by one writer to be why no multi-part episodes were planned in its early episodes (there eventually were in the fourth season).

* {{Calvinball}}: "Dodge or Dare" (later "Dodj or Daar"), a board game that Gumball and Darwin created, which involves taking a card and doing whatever is says on it. The trope applies in that, while the concept is (very loosely) structured with a set of "rules", the "rules" themselves are only there to ensure that ''sheer chaos'' results from playing it. In "The Car", Gumball is told to build a RubeGoldbergDevice in order to launch a projectile into the air using anything found in the trash. The projectile in question is a bowling ball, and when it finally fires off, it malfunctions and launches right at Gumball's face. Right before it hits him, Darwin ''pauses'' the moment like a VCR (complete with line of static and jumpy tracking) to point out that the card says that Gumball can't use his hands to block, leading to him getting his face smashed in.

[[TheGamePlaysYou The game has the power to cosmically enforce the rules, changing the laws of physics as needed]]. It nearly kills the entire Watterson family in "The Game" when they draw a card saying that nobody can breathe until the game is over.
